I haven't rode flat pedals since I stopped riding my Banana Bike; on the streets, on the Shore or racing. I believe your feet belong on the pedals, unless your doing a can-can, in which case you must certainly be a homo…

Yes, back in the days when The Cove was actually in Deep Cove it wasn't enough just to have a good ride but to remain unscathed…
Uh, is there anyone about 50 like I am that's thinking " So what's the big fuckin' deal?"
OK, not a bad "idea", about the same as the garden sprayer I was using 10 years ago but it's electric. Having to put a dirty bike in a condo blows, lost a bike from my storage once, thanks wife!
Does Kona and Cove have some sort of agreement? Umm, yes? Look into their history and you might find they have. At any rate, if you're prototyping a new bike are you going to use the closest thing you can find off the shelf or start buying hand-made prototypes that might not work exactly right like 10 times? There's about three companies in Taiwan that make most bike frames so what's the big deal if it looks like something else? Cove Bikes isn't Specialized but Chaz built his bike shop from a rat-hole into an empire and he was North Shore before there was a "North Shore", I think they know what they're doing.
$400 per side? That's obscene, there simply isn't $400 worth of materials and machining in it, we have to stop paying these prices. It's like the Vancouver housing market, the houses simply aren't worth $800,000.
I see no mention of having an even number of links here or on their website; the instructions for setting chain length might not work, correct?
That would be why I asked about the tire rub; is it a simple fix that only happens when maybe 1 out of 10 riders would ride hard enough to make it happen or is it a $4000 joke? Rocky Elements were infamous for the bottom pivots loosening but I fixed mine and it hasn't loosened since, if I could do it Ghost should be able to. Well, I build my own bikes so it's just a curiosity but it looked awesome in the store!
Could the rear wheel have some flex to it or the triangle? It seems you've gone after the pivots, might even be the tire itself as it looks like a wide casing on a narrow rim and maybe not a lot of clearance, everything moves around a bit when pushed hard. It shouldn't rub but I'd like to know why it does.
